The initial consultation with Stittsville Braces, your local Invisalign provider 

We have amassed quite a lengthy experience with Invisalign, and will happily discuss your needs with you during your first consultation in our offices. She will evaluate your teeth and your specific needs before deciding whether Invisalign is the appropriate treatment for your unique situation. During this consultation, she will gladly answer any questions you may have about the process, including cost, insurance and anything else that youíre curious about.



Designing a treatment plan just for you 

After your consultation and our dentist and you have decided that Invisalign is the right appliance to treat your condition, you will undergo a series of x-rays, pictures and impressions of your teeth. These images and impressions will be used to create a 3-D image of your mouth digitally, which will be the basis of your treatment plan. At this point you should be informed of the length of treatment, which is usually about a year for adults. You will be shown a visual representation of how Invisalign will gradually move your teeth into their corrected positions.



Receive your customized Invisalign aligners 

You will then receive your Invisalign aligners, and treatment can begin! Unlike traditional braces, these aligners are made of a clear and smooth BPA-free plastic that wonít irritate your mouth like the metal in some braces can. You will wear an aligner every day, removing them only to eat or to brush and floss your teeth. Each aligner in this system will work toward shifting your teeth into the desired position.



Changing your aligner 

Every two weeks, sometimes more or less depending on what your orthodontist says, you will change your Invisalign aligner, swapping out your current one for the next step in your treatment. Every six weeks or so, itís recommended that you book an appointment at our offices so that we can best monitor your progress and make sure that these aligners are working out as best as possible for you. Whenever you change your aligners, you will be able to see the results taking form right in front of your eyes.



Finishing your treatment

At the end of this process you will go to your orthodontist, who will check your results and tell you whether or not you will need retainers to keep your teeth in their correct positions. At this point you will have finished with the Invisalign aligners and should now have your best, straightest smile yet!

Unfortunately, Invisalign is not an option for everyone. You can schedule a free consultation here at Stittsville Braces to determine if this is indeed the right choice for you and your smile.
